      HAMMOND – The Louisiana Small Business Development Center at Southeastern Louisiana University will host a seminar Friday, Oct. 26, on "Effective Techniques for Using Facebook in Business."

     The free event, held in conjunction with the Hammond Chamber of Commerce, will be held at the Southeast Louisiana Business Center in Hammond on 1514 Martens Dr. from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

     "The buzzword in marketing and the 800-pound gorilla in social media is without a doubt Facebook," said Sandy Summers, assistant director of the Small Business Development Center. "It is common today for most businesses to have a Facebook page, but once you create the page, what do you do with it? This seminar will look at some advanced techniques for using Facebook as a marketing tool."

     Summers said participants will learn about landing pages, page design, deals, analytics, best practices, contests and more.

     "Brian Walker, owner of 5 Stones Media will instruct the class," Summers said. "Brian is also a regional representative for Constant Contact and travels throughout the state to educate businesses on ways to reach and keep their customer base through effective and affordable marketing technologies."

     There is no charge to attend the event; however, pre-registration is preferred. For more information, contact LSBDC Southeastern at 985-549-3831 or Online registration is available at
